It's symptomatic of teaching new material for the first time that it has taken this long to write my first post. The intentions were there, pictures were taken in good faith but it didn't happen.
Although I'm rusty, I like to think I know what I'm doing and have been well organised (once I sorted out where I was storing everything), but content creation has been a nightmare. I began this semester with two clear aims:
My variant of TBL probably isn't going to please the purist but hey, I have to deliver this so I want to do it my way and learn from the screw ups in my own time. So no scratch cards them. Just Kahoot, surprisingly. I will write up a proper case study at some point but it does work (even if it's a bit clunky).
I create a quiz (10 questions) then run it myself, screen grabbing each question and pasting it into a PowerPoint slide. The session then runs like this:
Very few issues first time around and it went down very well. Questions were a mix of issues covered in the previous week's seminar and the students' individual study tasks (aka 'homework').
Finally, a shout for Lidl (hey!) for selling a really handy headset with a microphone and mobile/tablet 3.5mm jack for just £9.99 - add a splitter (about £1.50) and a little USB audio card (£2) from eBay and I have a really flexible audio tool. I just need the time to use it!
